Introduction
  • Look around you…Geometry is EVERYWHERE!
  • The houses we live in, the buildings we learn and work in, the cars we drive…
  • All were designed and built using Geometry.
  • An understanding of Geometry and basic Geometric principles is an essential skill, not just in Math class, but in real life.
  • On the fifth grade level, basic Geometry skills include identifying and classifying angles and polygons, measurement, and calculating perimeter and area.
  • The purpose of this Webquest is to practice and master these basic Geometry skills and apply them to the construction of a prototype city skyline.
  • This Webquest has been designed for fifth grade students and meets the Geometry standards of New York State and the ISTE national technology standards.

  • In your group, choose the role in which you wish to become an “expert”:
  • Researcher Designer Architect Engineer
  • Begin your online research. Explore links to your area of expertise.
  • Practice the online games to sharpen your Geometry skills and help you to become an expert.
  • Create a Power Point, Google SketchUp, or Paint presentation on your area of expertise.
  • Collaborate on the scaled Construction Drawings for the 3-D City Skyline.
  • Identify, classify, and calculate perimeter, area, and angle measurements of all polygons.
  • Publish final project in a PowerPoint presentation.
  • Present to class on Smartboard.

task to build a city prototype
Task: To Build a City Prototype
  • Working in groups of four, students will design and construct a scaled 3-D elevation of a city skyline.
  • Each group member will assume one of the following roles:
  • The Designer: will “sketch” the preliminary drawings of the proposed city in the “Paint” computer program. Include interior floor plans.
  • The Researcher: will conduct an online search of five familiar city skylines, report on the history of each, and highlight areas for improvement .
  • The Architect: will construct “structural drawings” in the Google SketchUp program, applying basic architectural principles to design sketches.
  • The Engineer: will identify and classify polygons, and measure and calculate perimeter, area, and angles for all polygons to be used in the city prototype.

  • This Webquest is designed to be a culminating project for the fifth grade Geometry unit.
  • Project should be collaborative, worked on in both Math and Technology classes.
  • Project should be completed over the course of 5-7 class periods.
  • Prerequisites:
  • Students will have mastered basic measurement skills using a ruler and protractor.
  • Students will be able to identify and classify polygons.
  • Students will be able to construct and measure angles in degrees.
  • Students will be able to find the perimeter and area of given polygons.
  • Students will be able to design drawings in “Paint” and “Google SketchUp”, and create a PowerPoint presentation of a city skyline.

  • Google SketchUp: http://sketchup.google.com/download/gsu.html
  • Google SketchUp is a 3-dimensional drawing and modeling software program that allows the user to create architectural drawings to scale and render profiles and cross-sections of the drawing.
  • 1) Download the free version of Google SketchUp to get started.
  • 2) Install the program by double-clicking on the file name.
  • 3) Open Google SketchUp and the main drawing board will appear on the screen.
  • 4) Watch the animated tutorial.
  • 5) Open program and begin to draw using the pencil tool.
  • 6) Click on paint bucket to add color.
  • 7) Be sure to save your work.
